That's been posted here at least two times before. Very freaky.

They could pay me all the money in the world, but I still don't think I could physically do it. I would freeze up the minute I stepped out onto the ladder.

when I was a teenager, I used to climb antenna towers like this (but shorter) for fun. It never bothered me then. I don't know if it would now.
But we'd go hand-over-hand from ground level up to the top, 200 or maybe 300 feet up. Often there were no ladders, just posts / spikes.
And since most of those towers were already on hilltops, the view up there was both fantastic and a bit scary.
This video certainly makes me cringe to watch. I want to hug the arms of the chair I'm sitting in for extra stabilty while watching it.

P.S. Climbing towers for fun when you're not a professional repairperson is dangerous and stupid.
Not just the danger of falling, but also of electrocution and radiation.
Don't do it.
But teenagers do stupid things. It's a given.

Those guys should wear parachutes, so that when they're done they can just hop off the top and float back to the ground. Sure has to beat climbing all the way back down.

Big wall climbing at Zion back in the day. 2,000 ft up on day two (A3 route).
The guy that took this photo (Conrad Anker) went on to be on the cover of Nat Geo and some TV shows .

Lots of changes since then. :lol:

IF I could do it, I wouldnt take less than 350k a year. I am way past my prime to take on a job like that. I used to climb trees with spikes but not any more!!!
